Adorable Orphaned Elephant Receives Prosthetic Foot

When baby elephant Chhouk was found starving and abandoned in the Cambodian wilderness four years ago, he was missing his front left foot. His injuries — sustained because of those pesky poachers — left him with severe balance issues and unable to fully walk. Happy ending time: He was eventually fitted for a prosthetic foot. His rapid increase in size requires a new prosthetic every year. They grow up so fast, don't they?
